Residential Bookkeeping Coordinator
The JBG Companies Corporate Office
As a publicly-traded Real Estate Investment Trust with a total enterprise value of ~$6 billion, and placing 3rd in Washington Post's 2020's Best Places To Work List (for largest companies), JBG SMITH offers the perfect opportunity for an accountant to continue to advance their skills. Already the largest REIT focused on the DC market, JBG SMITH is extremely well positioned for continued growth based on Amazon's selection of National Landing in Arlington, Virginia for its new headquarters. The Washington Business Journal recognized this as the "Deal of the Decade" and was described on the front-page of the Wall Street Journal.
JBG SMITH is deeply invested in its people. In November 2019, we moved to our brand-new headquarters, walking distance from the Bethesda, Maryland metro stop. With a design focused on embracing new ways of working, feel free to work at a standing desk or take your laptop to the outdoor terrace and work by the firepit. Need a break? Exercise at the on-site fitness center or relax with a cup of Cold Brew Coffee from our office tap. With free Bethesda Bagels every morning or the variety of fruit, snacks, and drinks available in the office kitchen, we don't expect that you'll ever go hungry. Competitive benefits, structured career mentoring programs, and frequent out-of-the-office team events ensure that you will be working in a collaborative environment that inspires you every day. Currently, the Company's corporate employees are working in the office with a hybrid schedule (two remote days a week).
